Harvard oriental series. ATHARVA-VEDA SAMHITA Translated. With the cooperation of various scholars.

Atharva-veda means `the Veda of the Atharvan' or `the Knowledge of Magic Formulas'. The great importance of the Atharva-veda Samhita lies in the fact that it is an invaluable source of knowledge of popular belief as yet uninfluenced by ancient Indian priestly religion, of the faith in numberless spirits, imps, ghosts, and demons of every kind, and of the witchcraft, so eminently important to ethnology and for the history of religion. This work includes in the first place, critical notes upon the text, giving the various readings of the manuscripts; second, the readings of Paippalada of Kashmere version, furnished by the late Professor Roth; furhter, notice of the corresponding passages in all the other Vedic texts, with report of the various readings; the data of the Hindu scholiast respecting authorship, divinity, and metre of each verse; also references to the anciallary literature, especially to the well-edited Kausika and Vaitana Sutras, with account of the ritualistic use therein made of the hymns or parts of hymns, so far as this appears to cast any light upon their meaning; also, extracts from the printed commentary;p and finally, a simple literal translation with introduction and indices.
I read this book many times,this includes so many subjects,thatwe can call it encyclopedea of universe. Earlier this book was available in ancient complex language"sanskrt"of india,the auther had completed a very difficult task by decoding this book.He simplified this book and made it available for common men for reading and understanding.The book was kept in hide by the ancient indians and used as a trade secret to get rid of many diseases,kill the enemies,and get rid of ill fates etc..,it also mentions the simple techniques by which a personn can live happily throughout his life.I read this book and heartily congratulate the author for his noble job.
Finally, a side of "Hinduism" that most westerners are not familiar with,and some wish you continue to be unfamiliar with! This is India,pre-Aryan,with the Mother Tradition,the practical magic.the spontenaity,etc.
